New U.K. Law Targets Excess Access

Trend Hunters kid around a lot with posts, but this law under discussion by the U.K. will have a domino effect that will lead to no good. ISP's will be responsible for taking action against people who download films and music illegally by cutting them off from the world wide web entirely. There is a three strike provision, but this is a slippery slope that hopefully doesn't see the light of day!

Implications - Can you even imagine your life without the Internet now? Most people wouldn't know what to do with themselves! If this law comes into effect, people who stay away from illegal file-sharing will be just fine. Would you rather pay for music and movies, or never be allowed on the Internet again?
